“We had the best time today!”

We did the haunting of room 103 and then we went back later and did test subjects! So much fun and the staff are really friendly! We didn’t complete either room, but it was our first time even trying an escape room, so we just had fun with it!

– Francesca E.

“We had an awesome time.”

The puzzles were very challenging the room was very well put together and the staff were great. I would totally suggest planning your next or first escape with Level 1.

– Rob C.

“Exciting challenges and highly immersive puzzle rooms.”

I’ll definitely be planning my return to Level 1 soon. The staff were very friendly and did an excellent job of hosting our escape room experience. The rooms are very reasonably priced and I fully recommend springing for one of the premium rooms like the vault if you’re considering taking the jump into an escape room experience.

– Andrew B.


An excellent place for team building, for fun or if you are looking for some exciting and challenging activities to engage.

“We had a lot of fun!”

I have never tried an escape room before and wasn’t sure what to expect. It was definitely a fun challenge with some spooky-ness thrown in. I screamed, my brain got a work out and most importantly I had fun with friends. I’m looking forward to more escape rooms at Level 1 in my future!

“One of the Best Escape Rooms in the City.”

I’ve visited a few different escape rooms in the city and I would definitely consider Level 1 one of the better ones.

The staff is really prompt and friendly. The clues are a lot more logical in order than some of the other ones, so I would definitely recommend this one for small groups or newer/younger players.

– Megan W.

“Amazing experience!”

The entire experience was amazing at Level 1 Escape.

We did the Apartment 103 room, and it was great, super scary and well put together… we totally recommend this room to anybody that wants a good scare!

– Wasung.

“The BEST escape room we’ve tried!”

The staff are awesome, this is the 4th time we’ve visited. Highly recommended.

Thank you again Level 1 for the awesome experience you guys deliver.

– Christopher C.

“This place rocks. Period.”

Been to a couple escape rooms in Calgary.

This one is the best so far.

– Sasha G.

“So much fun!”

Never having done an escape room, we weren’t entirely sure what to expect. Totally blown away and I want to go back!

The plot lines were very thought out, all the puzzles were interesting.

So much fun! Can’t wait to try the other rooms!

– Morgan.
